Also, "Facebook Dating" does not mean that all accounts are activated all at once, it means that it will be a selective function that only people who want to use can use it.
If you enable Facebook Dating, the user will be setting a new "profile for dating". The profile for the date you set will not be shown to people who are already friends on Facebook, but will be made public to users who have enabled Facebook Dating for friends other than friends.
It seems that Facebook Dating searches for a partner based on a dating profile, but personal information other than Facebook's dating is also expected to be used for detailed analysis. Also, there is a possibility that this service will be provided free of charge, and since this announcement, there has been a big impact such as the stock price of companies operating the online dating service in the United States falling.
